End of spool detection of solar cell connector strings in stringer machine

SICK has an elegant and cost-effective solution in the G6 energetic photoelectric proximity sensor. It easily installs 90° to the spool and detects the contrast between the dark spool and the shiny metallic string. The IM Standard inductive proximity sensor detects wire breakage.
